A Morning Psalm: Psalm 96

Worship in the Splendor of Holiness
Oh sing to the LORD a new song;
        sing to the LORD, all the earth!
    Sing to the LORD, bless his name;
        tell of his salvation from day to day.
    Declare his glory among the nations,
        his marvelous works among all the peoples!
    For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised;
        he is to be feared above all gods.
    For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
        but the LORD made the heavens.
    Splendor and majesty are before him;
        strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
    Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples,
        ascribe to the LORD glory and strength!
    Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name;
        bring an offering, and come into his courts!
    Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness;
        tremble before him, all the earth!
    Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!
        Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved;
        he will judge the peoples with equity.”
    Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
        let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
        let the field exult, and everything in it!
    Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
        before the LORD, for he comes,
        for he comes to judge the earth.
    He will judge the world in righteousness,
        and the peoples in his faithfulness.
~Psalm 96~

What an amazing exhortation to praise and worship our God and King…not just for the people of God, but all of creation! What amazing promises…Oh the glory that awaits! May we all ‘tremble before Him’ as we offer up our praises and worship the LORD…

A Morning Psalm-Psalm 146

Praise the LORD!
    Praise the LORD, O my soul!
    I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
        I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
    Put not your trust in princes,
        in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
    When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
        on that very day his plans perish.
    Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
        whose hope is in the LORD his God,
    who made heaven and earth,
        the sea, and all that is in them,
    who keeps faith forever;
        who executes justice for the oppressed,
        who gives food to the hungry.
    The LORD sets the prisoners free;
        the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
    The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;
        the LORD loves the righteous.
    The LORD watches over the sojourners;
        he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
        but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
    The LORD will reign forever,
        your God, O Zion, to all generations.
    Praise the LORD!
~Psalm 146 ESV~
